Hi folks,

I'm looking for some help in deciphering the GM instructions that came with the Fog Light kit (39109170), for my Gen2 sedan. I've posted a copy of the relevant pages (7-9) for reference. The fuse box section is a bit confusing. I believe it's as simple as putting the "E" connector into pin 5 of Block L (step 17), and putting the "G" connector into pin 20 of Block L1 (step 20). What's confusing is the info on page 7, step 15. I'm guessing that what they are trying to tell us on steps 15I and 15II is to look at the L1 block and if there already is a wire installed at pin 20, to throw away the "F" harness? Hopefully someone who's completed this installation will chime in.

Thanks in advance, Steve

Yes that is exactly it. Some of the cars already have that wire installed. Mine did. If it is already there then you can throw that wire out. Seems like mostly LT and Premiers already have them. The LS does not have it.

Well I finally had decent weather and the time to tackle this job. My LT already had the control wiring between the fuse-box and the under-dashboard connectors , so I only had to route and connect the power lead into the fuse-box. The fog lights are not activated by the new switch and my tire pressures are not being displayed so I strongly suspect that a trip to the dealer to have the BCM reprogrammed is needed.

I did take a bunch of pics, so I'll write up a "how-to".

So I went to the dealer today to get my BCM programmed to turn on the fog lights and they couldn't do it either!! The instructions have a code that they are supposed to use (along with your car's VIN) to reprogram the BCM and they said that the code provided (1D24C219) was not correct. They claimed that they called GM and couldn't get the right code from them either.

GM has made this too complicated!!:th_thumbsdownsm:

The instructions give a website (www.ifz-berlin.de) for checking for updates, but it comes up with the same set of instruction (dated 1/17) with the same code.

Anybody have better luck with their dealer?

The code was on the cardboard box.
Oh, duh - I'm getting soft in the head! It's right on the top flap of the box, and I must have seen it when I opened the box, but with the flap facing down it didn't dawn on me to look. Thankfully I saved the box and now have the code. Thank you very much lmiller0810!

Sorry, code is unique and can only be used once. Haven't used mine yet.

I ordered mine when I ordered the car. I stopped by the dealer when he was doing the installation. When I saw it was 12 pages I was stunned. Certainly glad I had him do the installation.

Why didn't GM include them when they assembled the car?

It took 3 calls and an engineer visit to the dealership while my 2018 TD sat at the dealer for 3 days for the BCM to get programmed properly for the fog lamps. All fog lamps are LPO by the dealer during PDI for new Cruzes.

This makes me nervous about attempting this project. I would like to install some fog lights but this process is so much different than what I did with my Malibu. I have a 2017 LT. Will I have to buy a new switch to replace my current switch as well and put that in the dash? If not, do I just use a separate switch like it did on my Malibu?.


My other option is to buy some LED driving lights to put in that locations. I am guessing that I could just wire them in to the wiring for the current driving lights but I have not looked into that much further. LEDs use little power so I am thinking the fuse could handle it.

Any help would be appreciated.

Does anyone have a copy of the install instructions? I bought the new kit for the 2019 Cruze and it had no instruction sheet. Mainly looking for the cable routing and to confirm the fuse box location.
